Lightning Diverter G64800
Gallagher recommends all permanent Energizers be fitted with a lightning diverter to help protect from lightning damage. The Lightning Diverter has two terminals for attaching wires and leads from each terminal that are set with a wide enough gap to prevent the normal energizer voltage flow from arcing across, but close enough to allow a lightning voltage spike to jump easily across and pass to ground.
Excludes sales tax
- Diverts lightning from the fence to the ground to protect the energizer
- Long life guaranteed – able to withstand multiple lightning strikes
- Versatile - can be used with any energizer
- Easy attachment to fence post

Lightning will damage your energizer if it strikes your power fence. Gallagher energizers have internal lightning diverters that give partial protection against small strikes. Installing an Adjustable Lightning Diverter (G64800) will give added protection by providing a path for the lightning that strikes the fence to be diverted to ground. Otherwise disconnect the energizer from the fence and power supply during lightning storms. Lightning always finds the easiest way to ground. In areas where lightning is a problem installing a ground system to include a lightning diverter is essential. Recent trials have shown that combining the energizer ground and lightning diverter not only improves the energizer grounding but also protects it from lightning damage. The minimum number of ground rods is three. See the recommended grounding installation below.
Using the diverter does not guarantee complete protection. In bad lightning areas, grounding the top fence wire helps significantly.
